Seljer is right. It is a double octave down by default. You use the blend to mix the original signal (although fuzzy) with the double octave. A switch can be added to make it single octave down.

You're not going to be able to wire an 8 ohm cab to 16 ohms. Either you've got a pair of 16 ohm speakers in parallel or 4 ohms in series. The only way to get to 16 total is to buy new speakers.
